Reflection Area

Reflection Area blessed by Fr. Milton
The new Reflection Area in Drum Cemetery was officially blessed by Fr. Ray Milton, former CC Drum now PP Knockcroghery, during a special mass held in the cemetery on Saturday 8th October at 2pm. The reflection area was developed by Drum Cemetery Voluntary Group, who have been working to maintain and improve the cemetery on a voluntary basis since February 2010. The mass and blessing were followed by refreshments in Drum Parish Hall, where Canon Liam Devine, PP St. Peter & Paul’s Parish, officially launched the website and an online database record of the graves in Drum middle graveyard. The database has been developed by members of the group and they hope to expand the database next year to include Drum new graveyard.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Sunday night bingo will be unable to return to St. Mary’s Hall for another number of weeks. As a result, the Big Bingo which was announced is being postponed to a later date. In the meantime, bingo will continue to be held in St. Mary’s N.S., The Fairgreen, and in the Dean Crowe Theatre. The committee apologises for any inconvenience caused.
